Mixcraft from Acoustica is powerful yet easy-to-use recording software for Windows that provides all the tools necessary to record audio, arrange loops, remix tracks, compose with virtual instruments, score and edit video, and add effects.

Track count and instrument and effects instances are only limited by the host CPU, with WAV, AIF, OGG, WMA, MP3, and standard MIDI file formats supported. The software is fast and powerful and includes plug-in delay compensation, tempo detection, and pitch shifting among other major features.

Audio and Music Production
  • Record multiple MIDI and audio tracks simultaneously
  • Run as many tracks and instances of instruments and effects as your computer can handle
  • Notation tools allow you to create, edit and print your MIDI data in standard music notation
  • Add VSTi instruments, VST and DirectX effects
  • Includes plug-in delay compensation
  • Video Track allows loading and editing of video files - easily crossfade from one video clip to another
  • Remix the audio, add a soundtrack, and effortlessly render your video project to a new video file
  • Import WAV, AIF, OGG, WMA, MP3 and standard MIDI files
  • Mix down to MP3, WAV, high-quality compressed OGG, and other audio file types
  • OGG files can take up 1/10th of the hard drive space of uncompressed WAV recordings, ideal for collaborators exchanging projects over the internet, laptop users, schools, and anyone recording long speeches or conferences
  • Wave (WDM), ASIO, WaveRT and WaveRT Exclusive Mode low latency audio support
  • WaveRT Exclusive Mode (available in Windows 7) provides ultra-low-latency, solid audio performance on most audio hardware without any special sound card drivers
  • With WaveRT Exclusive Mode, Mixcraft can now interface directly with the audio hardware, bypassing the operating system for truly stunning audio performance
  • 32-bit sound engine supports recording and playback of audio with sampling rates up to 192kHz
  • Automatically detects beat locations, keys and tempos of imported songs
  • Time stretch any sound from 25% to 400% with FlexAudio without affecting the pitch

    Comments about Acoustica Mixcraft 5 - Multi-Track Recording Studio Software:

    I have been using Acustica Mixcraft since 2007 and I can say.. There isnt any other software out for windows today, that has the simplicity of use and depth as this product has.
    Mixcraft 5 is no exception to any of the previous versions I've had; Loaded samples for creating Beats, And Tons of Vocal effects for Recording, I have made mashups with this software, and recorded original songs.. If your into creating music of any genere, and dont want the hastle of use and still get a great finished product. This is the tool for you!
